Eyal Weizman lecture, "Forensic Architecture in Israel and Palestine"
Eyal Weizman uses the term ¿forensic,¿ derived from the Latin forensis, ¿forum,¿ to reconstruct the history of attacks on and violations of buildings. Drawing from the fields of judicial medicine and psychiatry, ¿Forensic Architecture¿ serves in revisiting damaged Palestinian houses and ruins.Eyal Weizman is an architect, professor and director of the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London. He is the recipient of the James Stirling Memorial Lecture Prize for 2006-2007 and a co-recipient of the 2010 Prince Claus Prize for Architecture (with Sandy Hilal and Alessandro Petti for DAAR). Weizman¿s books include Mengele's Skull (with Thomas Keenan at Sternberg Press 2012), Forensic Architecture (notebook, 2012), The Least of all Possible Evils (Nottetempo 2009, Verso 2011), Hollow Land (Verso, 2007), and Civilian Occupation (coedited with Rafi Segal and David Tartakover; Verso, 2003).Eyal Weizman¿s visit is part of the ¿Rethinking Israel¿ series, which is generously sponsored by the Sara and E.J. Evans Fund.
